Guruji, Devotion and Surrender are said to be signs of intelligence. But both Devotion and Surrender are beyond the intellect. Then how can they be its identifying features?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

See, truth is not of one type alone. Truth has many facets. So you can both prove and disprove any principle. Take any principle; you can prove it as both, correct and incorrect also. Both are possible, okay!
Think about it! If you feel it is right then take it or else leave it. Discuss this with your own intellect. When you do so, you will find that from one side it will appear to be right, and from the other side it will appear to be wrong.
